This paper presents comparison of two methods for assessment of hazards to ship power plant operator, used in the preliminary stage of ship power plant design process: the matrix method and that based on fuzzy logic. And, it reports this way results of realization of the research projects [1, 2] financed by Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education.The assessment of hazard to ship power plant operator, carried out at preliminary design stages meets certain difficulties resulting from that

It was found out that at preliminary design stages application of the fuzzy-logic-based assessment yielded better results as compared with the classic matrix method.
